Udaipur Sunset


Architecture: old and new

Udaipur, known for its European feel, is an easy place to be a tourist with its luxurious guest houses nestled on the shores of a lake, in the center of which is its Lake Palace, far beyond the meager funds I have brought with me on my travels.  Almost every backpackers’ guest house advertises its own 7:00 pm showing of “Octopussy,” the James Bond movie filmed here way back when.  It’s certainly a beautiful place and, though an easy place to be a traveler, also a place that is India still with cows wandering along with tourists, young boys on motorbikes asking for their picture taken, a cigarette dangling from his lips, a prop to complete the image.  Here are some of my favorite photos from my time there.


Picturesque indeed!
